The San Francisco Tape Music Festival 2020
sfSound.org/tape

America's only festival devoted to the performance of audio works projected in three-dimensional space, The San Francisco Tape Music Festival features four distinct concerts of classic audio art and new fixed media compositions by 40 local and international composers. Hear members of the SF Tape Music Collective, along with guest composers, shape the sound live over a pristine surround system (24 high-end loudspeakers) with the audience seated in complete darkness. It's a unique opportunity to experience music forming - literally - around you.

The 2020 Festival features contemporary fixed media compositions by eighteen international composers, including FRANCIS DHOMONT, NATASHA BARRETT, ROBERT NORMANDEAU, and BARRY TRUAX alongside tape classics by PIERRE SCHAEFFER, PAULINE OLIVEROS, and TORU TAKEMITSU. Bay area artists KENNETH ATCHLEY, BRUCE BENNETT, KYLE BRUCKMANN, BRAN(...)POS, THOM BLUM, CLIFF CARUTHERS, MATT INGALLS, DOUGLAS MCCAUSLAND, KRISTIN MILTNER, MICHELLE MOELLER, MAGGI PAYNE, and KEN UENO will also be presenting their works.

Saturday's 9:30pm concert features late-night-appropriate works that lean towards ambient and long-form-exploration.

In a special collaboration with SFSOUNDGROUP, the Sunday program features works for instruments and spatialized electronics, including the premiere of "Ghosts of Ancient Hurricanes," a new comission by KEN UENO, the North American premiere of "Force Fields" by JONTY HARRISON, and DENIS SMALLEY'S classic "Clarinet Threads."

The festival also pays tribute to MARIO DAVIDOVSKY (1934-2019) and KEN NORDINE (1920-2019).
